Ford Mondeo successor could be such an off-road station wagon

Ford Fusion was discontinued in America, the European version called Mondeo (for a long time this model was sold in Russia) is still being assembled, and the version for China has even undergone a major update. However, rumors continue to circulate that the brand is going to replace the Fusion / Mondeo family with an all-terrain wagon.

They say the raised “carriage” is preparing to enter the market next year. It is possible that the model will be called Evos or Stormtrak and will be available on both sides of the ocean. Judging by the spy photos, in the guise of the competitor Subaru Outback, Ford designers use the motives of the “Focus” and the electric Mustang Mach-E. Well, our artists were quick to imagine how such a car could look like without camouflage.

According to our information, the “off-road” station wagon is designated CD542 in the factory documentation, and the modern Ford architecture C2 is used as a platform. Obviously, the model will turn out to be larger than the Focus, and in the European market it will replace not only the Mondeo, but also the S-Max minivan.

Depending on the region of sale, the station wagon with increased ground clearance will receive a wide range of gasoline and diesel engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid power plant. Moreover, such a Ford can become all-wheel drive – the rear wheels will be turned by an electric motor.
